Dean's Welcome

As a key social activity in the modern world, public management aims to promote and protect the public interests by means of political, economic, managerial, and legal measures and policy instruments. It focuses specifically on the formulation and implementation of various public policies, allocation and re-allocation of social resources, provision of pubic goods and services, and organizing and coordinating relationships among different interest groups. Increasingly, public management is observed to be playing a more significant and pivotal role in the national and regional economic development and overall social welfares and progress. And the study on public management attracts henceforth great attention from different disciplines and becomes another focus in social science.

Benefiting from the University’s academic leadership in teaching and research in international economics, management, foreign languages and law in China, the School of Public Administration is in a better position to prepare the students to become civil servants in related foreign public sectors and foreign economic administrations, or the senior management in export-oriented enterprises. And for four decades, many of our graduates have taken important positions and leadership in foreign trade, customs, financial, cultural and other national government departments and relevant enterprises. Proudly, they make outstanding contributions in China’s mission of ‘opening to the outside’ and the social economic development.
